Expand snippets for Full Words only


Recommended Posts

Perhaps the most important missing feature of Snippets (which I love BTW) is a preference to expand with Full Words only. In essence, this would only expand a snippet if it were preceded and ended with a space. 

 

Here's an example use-case:

 

I have a number of snippets meant to help me correct common misspellings and typos. For example, 

 

"wth" ---> "with"

 

however, if I try to type "growth" Alfred will turn it into "growith" which is obviously not ideal  

 

another example, correct the common misspelling of:

 

"ommitted" --> "omitted"

 

however, typing "committed" will become "comitted" which is not correct.

Snippet keywords allow for spaces, so if you set a space before and after your keyword, as far as I understand, you'll get exactly the result you want?
